Tesco takes Men Behaving Badly starís beer

08 September, 2008

Tesco is to stock a beer co-created by Men Behaving Badly star Neil Morrissey.

The actor has teamed up with TV chef Richard Fox to create Morrissey Fox Blonde Ale as part of a series for Channel 4, following the pairís attempts to set up their own microbrewery at the back of a Yorkshire pub.

The first bottles are going into 500 Tesco stores, though the beer will have a wider audience as a cask beer for the on-trade.

Two further brews are planned.

ďBritish beer is a great institution and creating your own perfect pint was a concept that really appealed to me,Ē said Morrissey.

The label design features a picture of Morrissey and Fox shot by fashion photographer Rankin.

The TV series, Morrisseyís Perfect Pint, is to be screened in November.
